MASALA AKKI POORI / RICE FLOUR POORI

Masala Akki Poori / Rice flour poori is a delicious dish from Karnataka . One of the easiest and yummiest breakfast. Rice flour poori is gluten free. The masala enhances the taste of these pooris.The masala may vary . I have grown up eating these delicious pooris with coconut chutney , sagu , potatao masala . Today i served these yummy pooris with tomato yogurt chutney . It was a lovely combination.

Some Information of Rice Flour:

  • Rice flour is usually made from milling washed and sun dried rice.
  • Used as thickening agent in recipes.
  • Used to make confections like rice cakes, macaroons and some types of buns due to the texture and flavor.
  • Glutinous rice flour –widely used in Chinese and Japanese dishes.

  • Heat oil in the frying pan . In meantime lets roll the poori.
  • Make medium size balls from the dough. Cover the dough as it should not get dry.
  • Grease your palms with some oil and flatten the ball evenly using your palm. You can also keep the dough between two sheets of plastic or zip lock bags and then roll gently with a rolling pin or press with a flat bottom cup to get a round poori.
  • The rolled pooris should not be too thick or too thin.
  • Remove the rolled poori and slid them into the hot oil.
  • Then gently press and nudge the poori, in circular motion so that the poori puffs completely.Fry untill both the sides are nicely done
  • Remove the poori and drain them on the paper towel to remove excess oil if any.
  • Serve with sagu, coconut chutney , any kind of dal or curry . I serve it with tomato and curd chutney .

Notes

  1. Adjust the chilli as per your spice tolerance
  2. You can add chilli flakes .
  3. You can add coriander powder , jeera and saunf to the poori .
  4. You can add only fresh coconut , chilli and coriander too.
  5. This is the way my family loves it .
  6. Green chilli can be substituted by red chilli or chilli flakes.

    Preethi I sometimes make akki roti but have not tried masala akki poori. An interesting recipe which for I am for sure trying out as a brunch idea to serve with potato curry.

  3. I vaguely remember eating this during my highschool days when my classmate got it ; sounds and looks delish esp with the masala Paste kneaded into d dough

    What an interesting recipe! While we make akki roti often, we have never made pooris with rice flour. Love the masala – onions, chillies, coconut, et al – you have used here. Will definitely try this out shortly.

    These look divine! I have tried years back the basic rice flour poori but never attempted to make at home. This masala akki poori recipe has convinced me to try it asap. Thanks for sharing!
